Australian blues legend Phil Manning returns to Phnom Penh for two shows. Manning has been a fixture on the Australian music scene since the late 1960s. In 1969, he co-founded the band Chain, arguably the greatest blues band Australia has ever produced. Manning and Chain are often credited for exposing Australia to blues music, the roots of which come from America's black communities in the country's deep south. Critics praise Manning for his sensational technical abilities, silky vocals and insightful songwriting. A finger-picker and slide guitar player, he points to the six-string style of the early delta masters as the foundation of his music. He has shared the stage with many of the genre's greatest names, including Muddy Waters, Sonny Terry and Brownie McGee, Albert Collins, Freddie King and even Bo Diddley. Shows start at 8:30 p.m. No cover.
